“It’s lonely, way out in left field; the coach doesn’t even know my name.

This quote from the song “Way Out in Left Field” from the musical I need a Vacation by John Jacobson and Mac Huff that my school is performing made me think of being an overlooked nobody.

When I took piano lessons as a shy 8-year-old, the teacher couldn’t remember my name. Week after week,I would sit there on the hard bench, wincing as she called me Linda. I didn’t have the self advocacy skills to remind her of my real name. Ironically, now I can’t remember her name!

Ah, but there is Someone who has always known my name, even before my parents named me. He is so powerful that He cannot forget me, or my name. He has also promised to give me a new name.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some
of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows
except the one who receives it “(Revelation 2:17).

“But now, thus says the Lord…:

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine’” (Isaiah 43:1 ESV).

He bought me back and it cost a lot. I am His. I need never fear.  There is nothing to fear with the most powerful King of the universe on my side. He knows my name!

If you feel unknown and overlooked, please reread Isaiah 43:1 and realize that you are known and precious to our wonderful Father. He knows you inside and out, the good, the bad and the ugly side of you; yet still chooses to love you. Get to know Him through His word and His Holy Spirit. Love Him back by obeying Him.

“‘The word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. ‘ Psalm 33:4-5

Thought

God is faithful. We can trust his promises to be kept and his purposes to be good. How do we know? The sunrise each morning is a reminder that the Father of heaven and earth is at work keeping his universe in working order. If it is true in nature, it is true in the spiritual realm as well. Greet each sunrise as a reminder of God’s faithfulness.

Prayer

O Magnificent and Majestic Creator, I greet today as your gift and a reminder of your faithfulness. Each day the sun rises I anticipate the day you honor your promise to send your Son back to bring us home to you. Give me a keen sense today of your faithful presence. I pray this through him in whom all your promises find their fulfillment. Amen.
